Where do you get your security patches from?

A little bit of a silly question when links are provided in the slackware-security email but their servers are still saturated - and none of the mirrors seem to have it in /

I'm looking for kernel-ide-2.4.26-i486-3.tgz, but my usual mirror,
still doesn't have it.

Is there a place where patches are mirrored with a reasonable degree of speed?

Sure, I already use these, but my only problem with them is that they are particularly slow,

Patches don't propagate to them particularly quickly, I was hoping there was a mirror that was updated more often :(
